Women who have had children or are going through menopause experience hormonal changes that negatively affect the health of their vaginal tissue. At Suffolk Pelvic Medicine, urogynecologist Dr. Jennifer Hill provides diVa laser vaginal therapy to improve the quality of your vaginal tissue, restore vaginal health, and revive sexual pleasure. If you’re a woman living in Riverhead or East Islip, New York and the surrounding Long Island area, and you’re experiencing vaginal discomfort, call the office, or book an appointment online to find out if diVa laser therapy is for you.
This breakthrough vaginal wellness treatment increases the thickness and elasticity of the vaginal wall and leads to labial tightening. The hybrid fractional laser uses heat energy to tighten labial tissue.
It offers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, allowing Dr. Hill to customize treatments based on the condition of your vaginal tissue. The combined laser energy both resurfaces existing vaginal tissue so it’s replaced with brand new, healthy tissue and stimulates collagen production to maintain tissue strength and elasticity.
The diVa laser allows you to experience accurate, consistent, and quick improvements in vaginal health. The laser is a valid, noninvasive alternative to a labiaplasty or other surgical treatments.
Women who are going through menopause or have had chemotherapy or a hysterectomy as well as women who are in the immediate postpartum period or breastfeeding can experience alterations in estrogen production. This can negatively affect your vaginal tissue, leading to symptoms such as:
The diVa laser can help resolve these issues, leading to greater vaginal wellness. Plus, the laser can tighten up a lax labia, improving your comfort and appearance.
Treatment with the diVa laser is well-tolerated by most women. Dr. Hill places the laser handpiece into your vagina to deliver controlled energy to the tissue.
You may feel slight pressure and heat, but the treatment lasts just three to five minutes. Some women describe increased sensitivity near the vaginal opening. Sedation is not necessary, but Dr. Hill may recommend a topical anesthetic if you’re concerned about sensitivity. Immediately following a session, you can return to your regular activities. You have no bleeding, discharge, or lingering discomfort. However, Dr. Hill will advise you to avoid intercourse for 48 hours.
Dr. Hill customizes a treatment plan for you. Women generally benefit from one to three procedures, spaced four to six weeks apart. Many doctors also advise a touch-up session once per year after your initial treatment.
